  • A colorful baby Akoya strand

    Hi guys, I am having fever today and I am posting some pearls for distraction. I bought this strand of baby Akoya for a while. I haven't decided how to turn it into a necklace exactly.

    I bought a few of those baby Akoya strands myself. I strung them to use as pearl chains- one long one and one shorter one. Here’s a pic of the longer one.

        Very tiny. Mine are around 3-4mm and from Druzy.

            Thank you, Lisa. : )

            jeg, beautiful necklaces you made. Is this your listing? Looks very similar. https://www.etsy.com/listing/8650607...pearl-necklace

            Linda, jeg answered your question.

            I bought this strand to hang a carved mother of pearl of GSSP pendant. I prefer to avoid using string wire on this as I just had experience that my 4-year-old necklace strung by Beadlon string wire broke after a pull by my child and the beads fell all over places. These baby Akoya's are tiny. Once they fall, I cannot find them back. I am debating between thread strung and wire wrapping.

              It's a beautiful strand StarryPearl, I would either use it as a chain or scatter bigger south seas or tahitians along it. Get well soon.

                StarryPearl- I’m not familiar with that listing. All the pearls I used to make both necklaces came from Druzy.
